This album provides the listener with a good tutorial of house music. Some of the tracks come from Chicago house and others come have a subtle Detroit techno or acid jazz influence, yet they are all undoubtedly rooted in the simple pleasures of house music. It is a refreshing collection against much of today's harsher hard house and trance. The track from Juan Atkins is especially good with a seamless transition into Alexis P. Suter's "Stop! (We need eachother)." This collection is a good education for anyone interested in house music.
